"Next, rcaulro that every foreigner .. who comes here to llvo must, within n rensonnblo time, say n yeur, declare his Intention of becoming nn American cttlr.cn nnd tnko tho necessary steps to do so, thereby, from that moment, as suming nil tho obligations ot citizen ship of our country, and thnt means he must defend our flag upon equal terms with our native born, and If ho ts not willing to do this, be should be sent back from whenco ho came." That's the stuff," exclaimed lllllle. "And. finally, enact such legislation ns will make voting compulsory. Pop ular government Is based upon tho tmrtlclpntlnn ot all nnd the rulo of vlie majority, and democracy cannot cnntlnuo nnuno successiut unless wa llvo up to tho spirit of tho Institu tion. "Tho first step, however, Is the pass ing ot the Chamberlain bill for univer sal military training. It you will get tho lending citizen, nnd especially tho editor of your paper, to write. personal letters to your congressman and both senators, urging their support, It will help enormously. "I soo by tho morning papers," said Undo Dan, "thnt the Rotary clubs of tho entire country) tho llvcst, most effi cient organization to be found, have unanimously decided to get back ot the Chamberlain bill and give tt loyal and enthusiastic support They will work with the Universal Military.
